The Music Express DJ style is very simple, get everyone dancing and be the best at it. This belief has been my guiding force since I began in 1987.


There’s nothing more energizing and intense than having a dance floor filled from end to end with people dancing to the beat of the music. It’s a rush that I get to experience with each and every event I do.

Music Express has performed at all of the Islands top venues. Whether your event is in Waikiki or on the North shore, large or small we can do it all. Our top events include Weddings, Ceremonies, Birthdays, Dances, Graduations, Proms, Holiday and Military events.

I hope to share my passion for DJ’ing with each and every one of you.
I will make your event a "Memory that will last a lifetime..."

Rick Peralta from Music Express Hawaii is amazing! He gave me everything I could have wanted in a DJ and emcee. He put together a timeline for me and adjusted it to fit the unique wedding I was having. At the wedding he was awesome at making sure all the guests knew where all the important things were like the bathroom, bar, and when the buffett was opening and closing. The music was great and all the guests had so much fun, especially when Rick was asking the questions for the slippah game. I would definitely recommend Music Express Hawaii!

This is my very first review, and Rick did such an amazing job at our wedding, that I felt that he deserved a great one! We had a very tight budget for our wedding, so when originally looking around for a DJ, I found that a lot of them were very expensive, but were also not responsive to emails or calls.
I was referred to Rick by a friend who used Music Express at her wedding, and while initially hesitant because his prices were so much more affordable than the others I looked at, after the first conversation with him over the phone, I knew he would be perfect! And he was!! We were planning to have Rick be our emcee and DJ, but ended up having one of our friends do the emcee part. However, I have no doubt that Rick would have been an amazing emcee! Although he was not performing our emcee services, he met with me and my husband several times over the next few months, helping us create our timeline as well as the "Emcee Itinerary" for our friend, which listed everything he needed to say! He assisted us with every detail of the reception timeline and without his help, it definitely would not have gone as smoothly!!
Rick also ended up helping us out at the last minute when I discovered that the hotel was actually not providing a projector and screen for our slideshow. He also provided uplights for the venue that made the room absolutely stunning! For our first dance, our guests ended up doing a "money dance" and I could tell the song would end before all the guests got to us since a line started forming! However, Rick handled the transition smoothly by immediately playing another song that matched perfectly with our First Dance song, so it seemed like it was planned that way and there was no awkward silence after our First Dance song ended!
Even though I procrastinated a lot and didn't give him a lot of the things he needed until the last minute, Rick was always calm and sooooo helpful! I definitely would recommend Rick and his team to anyone!! He was AMAZING!

We met with Rick 5 times before the wedding and had a couple of phone conversations with him. His response time is quick and he is very helpful with writing the program, helping to plan the set up of the room and all the meticulous details that's involved with being a DJ for the wedding. In fact he was so good that we decided to add on his emcee services as well at the last minute. Even though he had a gig downstairs that same night, he made it happen, he managed the background music at the same time he emceed. And he was an awesome emcee on our wedding night! Everyone had a great time and I even got asked by a guest how much I paid for his DJ service. Which is another thing, I asked other DJ's how much they charge, if they could even compare to his price and they said no, that I was getting a great deal and that I should take it. A few nights before the wedding, he said he upgraded his uplighting to LED's and will use them at no additional charge, even though he gave it to us for dirt cheap in the first place. We also used his slideshow projector and screen and he offered to put together a slideshow for us but we figured it out and made it ourselves. Rick is very friendly, has so much years of experience so I (being my own wedding coordinator) felt comfortable asking him a whole bunch of questions and was thankful for the input he provided me. We built a relationship and I'm kinda wishing the wedding wasn't over yet :)

Rick was our DJ for the night and he did an amazing job! Their website was easy to maneuver through- payments, music selection, notes, etc. so you can really personalize your day. I was able to choose what songs we wanted during dinner, cocktails, dancing, etc and make notes on what songs I didn't want or categories I wasn't a fan of. Rick did an amazing job and the dance floor was always busy with either little or big humans dancing up a storm. We got a lot of compliments on our wedding that everyone enjoyed the whole time. Thanks Music Express for making our day the best day ever!

Rick's overall professionalism and flexibility are unmatched! His willingness to go out of his way to accommodate/include a comedian during our reception as well as a late start while still managing to incorporate all the major parts of a reception show his years of expertise in the area of weddings and receptions. He is the master! There are simply not enough words to describe how talented of a DJ and emcee he is!

Rick was a great DJ! He was also very flexible when we decided to add a band to the wedding entertainment. We loved the Hawaiian and reggae music he played during the cocktail hour and dinner. He helped get people on the dance floor and was very receptive to music requests. In addition, he was very reasonably priced and extremely responsive. I already recommended him to one of my friends who is getting this year!

They say that entertainment is one of the things that can make or break a wedding celebration. I hired Rick Peralta to provide DJ/emcee services for our wedding event in Honolulu and he definitely deserves a lot of credit for making our wedding a successful, and very memorable event. Rick, from the moment I sent a email inquiry on his website was extremely responsive, motivated, and helpful through every process without trying to push anything more than what we wanted/needed. Very great, easy going guy that made the planning part of the whole thing very stress free and pleasant, especially to this 'know nothing' Groom. He was always easy to contact and very flexible with requests/changes down to the last minute. Very willing to go out of his way to make arrangements and meet up to fit your needs. On the day of the event, his family and he showed up very early to set up and from there was extremely professional and made a excellent host to the event getting even some of my more shy guests to get up and enjoy themselves. Aside from some minor requests, I gave him full discretion in the music selection and he did a great job.

In conclusion, you cannot go wrong with Rick and if anyone I know wants to have a big event in the beautiful island of Oahu, I'd recommend him in a Heartbeat. And if he's reading this, Rick, Mahalo for the great work you do.

Definitely recommend

Rick was wonderful throughout the entire planning as well as the day of our wedding. His aloha was great and made working with him so much more pleasant. His communication was great which I appreciated, since we were planning everything from California for our wedding at the Queen Emma summer palace in Oahu. I recommend Rick if you are planning your destination wedding - he relieves a bit of the stress and worry.

Well done. Rick was hired to provide music/dj services. Then we hired him to be our reception emcee also. Rick and his family were there on time to set up. And they stayed until the contract ended even though the crowd had whittled down. Rick followed the Program agenda to a "t," kept things moving along at a great pace, and, the music they played were all from my playlist. Rick was also very professional, flexible and accommodating in meeting with me at least twice before the reception day. He responded to any emails within 24 hours.

Definitely use Rick & Music Express Hawaii. You will not be disappointed!
